Baby Bundles was born from heartbreak, started by Emily Harry, Heather Leavitt and Cat Long to help other mothers while honoring the children the three of them never got to love and raise.
Emily and Cat each delivered a child who was stillborn. Heather delivered two who were stillborn, and a third who died an hour after she was born. The world never had the honor of getting to know Low, Catherine, Joseph, Sarah and Mary. Baby Bundles has become their tender legacy – “A gift from our little angels,” Heather says.
Baby Bundles provides a bag full of necessities – baby outfits, blankets and the like – to mothers in need as they leave the hospital with their newborn. The contents of each bag are worth about $125, helping families begin parenthood on the right foot. Since starting in 2010, Baby Bundles has delivered bags to families in and around Charlotte through partnering with Presbyterian Hospital, Nurse-Family Partnership, the Charlotte Ronald McDonald House and Crisis Assistance Ministry.
Baby Bundles offers opportunities to get involved: Volunteers for the Build a Bundle Program and the Warehouse are always needed.
